Volunteers – Dementia Buddy Service

Volunteer/Placements

Age UK Blackburn with Darwen is urgently appealing for volunteers for their Dementia Buddy Service. Volunteers would assist with accompanying service users with low level dementia to an activity group. Full training will be given.

“We need 4 volunteers who could give us 2-3 hours, So if you have a few hours to spare on or want to get some dementia support experience, helping a person with dementia to enjoy life and live well, then we need you to get in touch!” said Fran Breckell, Dementia Service  Project Co-ordinator.

This role can be done as a college placement as long as you have the correct DBS provided by the college and intend to volunteer no less than 200 hours in the Academic Year .

To volunteer or for more information on placements please contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator at Age UK on 01254 266620 or email volunteering@ageukbwd.org.uk
